1. Beat butter until creamy. Using a hand or standing mixer, beat softened butter until creamy. This will take about 30 seconds.

2. Slowly mix in the remaining ingredients. First lower the mixing speed to add in the powdered sugar. Then slowly increase mixing speed as you add the milk, flavoring, and salt.

3. Increase mixing speed and mix until the frosting reaches desired consistency.


Note: To turn this into a chocolate buttercream slowly mix in 1/2 cup of cocoa powder. Slowly increase the mixing speed as the cocoa becomes more incorporated.
